Interschool PTA Competition.

Just 2 Sundays back, the Tan Tans were invited to an annual inter-school competition, the twist was that this competition was not meant for the kids but for the teachers and PTA (parents-teacher assistant). And the competition? Only 2 games which were Tug-of-War and 2-Legged Race.

The Tug-of-War was exciting due to the spontaneous crowd cheering and supporting the participants in the game. And the participants really give it their all.
